My First Birchbox

As I’m now entering my late twenties, I am conscious that I need to look after myself, my skin and my body. I’m also aware that my make-up routine (and requirements) have changed since my teens and early-twenties. But keeping up with the best products on the market is tough and personally I get a bit lost.

I generally rely on my slightly more glamorous and clued-up friends to tell me what I should be using and what the best products are. However I feel I need to stand on my own two feet and work things out for myself. And then I came across Birchbox, which seemed to be the answer to all my naive beauty questions.Continue reading

30-day No Pasta Challenge

So Pasta is one of my favourite foods, if not THE favourite and ultimately, I eat too much of it! I love everything about it: the different shapes, the sauces that go with it, the cheese that inevitably goes on top of it! As you might know from my other posts about this Italian delight, one of my favourite dishes is spaghetti with garlic, chilli and olive oil and I would say I eat this once or twice a week…at least.

The only problem is, I also suffer pretty regularly with stomach discomfort and bloating (I’ll leave it at that and spare you the detail!).

Sunday dinner at Home Sweet Home in the Northern Quarter, Manchester

Following today’s awesome photo shoot (more of that later), the girlies and I headed for a bite to eat. We opted for Home Sweet Home in the Northern Quarter, Manchester.

Perfect for a plateful of yummy grub, good portions and comfortable surroundings, Home Sweet Home is located on Edge Street (next to Common Bar) in the Northern Quarter. It has a comfortable, homely interior with nick-nacks on the walls and an eclectic mix of furniture. This seemed like the ideal spot for a girly dinner, washed down with a glass or two of Prosecco – and we chose well!
